The Constitutional Monarchy of Great Sothos is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.279 billion Sothosians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hjortsbaek. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sothosian economy, worth 236 trillion Golden Falcons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,817 Golden Falcons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, and a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Sothos's national animal is the Tri-Striped Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Sothos is ranked 69,838th in the world and 103rd in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 236 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
